Blue Moon is easily thought of as one of our favorite restaurants. The food is consistently fabulous, with excellent specials and wonderful regular menu items. We have celebrated special occasions, joined friends for dinner and had family dinners at Blue Moon. The service is awesome! Its worth the drive from Hwy 24-Morehead City.

Visited Blue Moon Bistro for dinner in January and found both the service and the food to be exquisite. We aren't drinker so I can't comment on the wine selection, but I had an appetizer of fried oysters that took this typical Southern comfort food to the level of a melt-in-your mouth gourmet treat. My entree of salmon, ordered medium... More

This historic house was nicely decorated and had about 12 tables that could be combined for larger groups. We went on a January weekday, and there were lots of empty tables. I imagine in the summer and on weekends reservations are a must. There is a complete bar and extensive wine list We had the caesar salad, which was quite... More

Visited Blue Moon diner with a group of friends for a Christmas party. While we were one of the few groups at the restaurant everything was top notch from the service to the food to the wine. We had a blast. Will be back again soon.

We went last night and surprisingly they were less than 75% full. Even so, service was poor. Had to ask several times for water, lime, olive oil. While the staff appeared attentive, they were not effective. When I had a problem with my main - ice cold no one to be found for several minutes. Our appetizers were tasty and... More

One of my Best Friends and I went here after a long day of fishing on the sound. We were going to a different restaurant, but thankfully they were hosting a private party, so we went down the street and found the Blue Moon Bistro!! The service was excellent and with it being a upscale restaurant and us just coming... More

We had their specials for the evening and they were amazing. We didn't have reservations (I would highly recommend them) and, fortunately, we had a high top table in the bar area. They had wonderful food selections including vegetarian choices (which I appreciate). Service was top notch and very friendly. I think this is one of the top restaurants in... More

Blue Moon Bistro is a must while in the Beaufort area. I would suggest making a reservation to ensure you get a table at this fine establishment. The ambiance is warm and inviting which is only surpassed by the service and the quality of the food. While it isnt true farm to table, the menu changes every month or so.... More

A local referred us to this restaurant, so glad that he did. Nice atmosphere & attentive service. Husband's triggerfish entrée was the highlight of our meals, if they have it for a special, don't pass it up!
